Samsung today announced the Chromebook 2 powered by an Intel Celeron processor, as the company continues to support Google-powered operating systems. The Chromebook 2 is a light device designed to power on fast and utilize cloud-based storage - it likely won't be a desktop replacement for business users, but could be a fun, inexpensive product for consumers to play with.
The device runs Google Chrome and is powered by an Intel Celeron N2840 (2.58 GhZ) processor, 2GB DR3L RAM, 16GB storage, Intel HD graphics, and supports 1366 x 768 resolution. The Chromebook has an 11.6" screen and weighs just 2.65 lbs., with battery life up to nine hours.
The Samsung Chromebook 2 with Intel Celeron processor is now available for pre-order with a $249.99 MSRP, and will be released next week.
